Data loss prevention (DLP) is a serious technology that addresses the serious issues around information risks. However, even serious topics can benefit from an injection of humor to help illustrate the issues. Please enjoy our fifth and last cartoon in the short series about The (Mis)Adventures of Dave L. Preston.
